“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” # Steve Jobs

“Let’s go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday” # Steve Jobs

"My first impression of Nokwazi was one of a focused professional who genuinely wants to assist. Her expertise and understanding in the subject matter of how to compile a business plan is astounding. Even though she knew very little about my industry she was still able to show me how to focus my thinking around the importance on creating an effective business plan that best describes my objective and caters directly to my audience. I recommend Nokwazi to any business as she is an intelligent and pleasant businesswoman, she would be a great asset to have on any team."
